Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Well, finally we've moved to a new place - shifting stuff is almost done, I still have a few things to clear from the old house. It's amazing bcos we've moved stuff from 2 houses into 1 - it's a good thing I have the room in the loft which has a small store room connected to it. Otherwise I would not be able to be close to all my craft supplies. I love my new room - it has a nice ceiling with exposed wood, an English touch I suppose.

For the past 3-4 weeks in prep for the move, I've been assembling furniture and shelves - yup, I'm the "handyman" in the family. It's been hard work - I still need to put in 6 doors on the shelves. Apart from that, everything else is done.

To all my friends and visitors to the blog, I wish you a wonderful Christmas and another "good" Year ahead. It's been a tough 2 years for me since coming home, but I promise myself next year will be different! I'm certainly going to see Barcelona whatever happens and maybe a few other places if time permits.

Have a good one!

Live in the Moment....

Recently, despite my busy schedule trying to juggle part-time work, packing & getting ready to shift to a new place and selling my works of art at a local bazaar, I've spent every single spare moment I have on my computer. As I mentioned, I've bought e-books over the internet and finally had a chance to look at them. Here's a simple collage I learnt today. The poppy flower was taken at a botanical garden in Auckland earlier this year and the quote "live in the moment" really reflects how I feel right now.

Time flies so quickly and I'm learning how to appreciate every moment I have - with people, doing the things I love and just living the simple life...

Flowers - my favourite subject

It has been a while since I last blogged. Been busy with lots, getting ready to move into a new place, lots of packing up to do, buying some furniture, etc...

This week I've been busy downloading stuff from digital scrapbooking websites - buying kits and e-books to improve my Photoshop Elements knowledge with the hope to be able to produce better layouts. But I have not had time to read the books! Typical, isn't it?

Here's some pics taken in Penang - mad search for flowers back in Feb. Every place I visit, I try to take the local flowers to fill my album of flowers of the world...
